This guide is adapted from a libguide created by librarians at the George A. Spiva Library at MIssissippi Southern State University.

A Product of your time

Write about what happened during the year that you were born and sometimes even what happened on the very day that you were born.  What historical and cultural events happened on or around that date? What was the impact of these events? What conditions existed in the country or in the world on that date?

This guide will help you identify and find information about events that happened on your birthdate and it will help you learn about conditions that existed in the times into which you were born.
